 NH TC40D vs JD 4400

I had my mind set on a JD 4400(based on reputation and test drive) until I tested the TC40D. I don't like the styling, but the mechanicals are great. Has anyone else had similar experience? I want to make sure this isn't "puppy love". This is my first tractor in MANY years, so I don't want to make a mistake. I'll be using it to mow 8 acres of horse paddocks (some on steep slops), groom mow 3 acres, reclaim and maintain old logging roads (steep terrain),bush hog wooded hillsides and general horse barn use.The price of the TC40D equipped with FEL, Cutter, and Mower is $1,000 above the JD 4400. The NH seems a much better value, if it is as solid as a Deere. I'd love to hear from mechanics and owners of the specific models, as well as those who evaluated both.This Board has been VERY helpful in my search so far. Thanks for your posting.

 NH TC40D vs JD 4400

Mark,

I have the TC35D which is the same frame as the TC40 (but with a smaller engine). I've had the tractor for 4 months now; 80 hrs. I think it is a great tractor. I've had no mechanical problems, HST is very easy to use and it has lots of traction. I have the 16LA loader (no supersteer) and that works just fine too. If you have more specifc questions I'll be happy to help but in general I think that the tractor is well built.

Peter

 NH TC40D vs JD 4400

Mark i've been looking at those same tractors and been quoted 2000 less for the NH TC-35D at the most expensive local dealer of 4 than the JD 4400's least expensive dealer out of 3 if I were you I would look around a little more that pretty much decided me but I was willing to drive around up to 100 miles but as luck would have it the best NH dealer was 18 miles down the road

Eric,
What do you figure is price difference between the TC35D and TC40D should be?

 NH TC40D vs JD 4400

The TC35D is the model to compare to the 4400 Deere. The TC40D needs to be compared to the 4500 JD. The 4500 is also a larger framed unit but does not have hydro as an option. Only the Power Reverser. I was quoted 19,300 for the TC35D with the 16LA loader vs 21,000 for the 4400. The NH dealer told me to consider the TC40D for $21,000 because the TC40D has a four cylinder engine vs a three cylinder in the TC35D. (4400 is 3 cyl also)
The NH dealer was out of brochures and let me take his Sales Training book that highlights how to sell the Boomers against JD & Kubota. It's pretty interesting as it has a feature comparison matrix with capacities, options etc. I can answer any question with a NH spin....except how to justify the purchase to my wife. Someone needs to post "10 reasons to tell your wife why you need a new compact tractor!"

Michigander--capability-wise and hp-wise, the JD4400 is comparable to the TC35D, however when I was looking at the TC35D as a replacement for my JD4400, I found the TC35D to be a much larger tractor in physical dimensions.

Mike, you are right the TC35D is quite a bit larger than the 4400. NH made the move to the larger frame at 35HP instead of 40HP as Deere did. If you want to compare on frame size, you'd have to use the TC33D instead. The fairest match up would be to the 4300 Deere(32HP).

Michigander - I have a TC29D that I got a year ago last August (165 hours now).

RE your wife and the pending tractor purchase: I discovered it was a lot easier to beg for forgivness than to get permission!

Now that we have had it for a year, she is glad I (we) got it.

10 reasons to tell your wife why you need a new compact tractor

1. I値l get my chores done sooner so I can spend more time with the kids.
2. I値l get my chores done sooner so I can spend more time with you.
3. I値l get my chores done sooner so I can spend more time doing your chores.

5. I値l be spending so much time at home that I won稚 be able to spend as much time at the tavern.
6. A new compact tractor is cheaper than a new RV.
7. The neighbor lady won稚 hit on me like when I bought the Corvette.
8. I can grow $400.00 worth of organic vegetables with my $18,000.00 investment.

You'll never know how close to the mark you are. The only things I would take issue with are that I never wanted to own a RV and the corvette was a Mustang GT convertible, the Lincoln was a Cadillac and the Simplicity was an old JD 318. Man, you're good.
